I’m getting everything ready for the Daniel Fast I’m leading for the New Year (begins on Sunday, January 9th). But I wanted to share this as you look forward to your personal time with your Father.
Do you know God has an immeasurable treasure of blessings for you?
Let me explain . . .
One of the first steps you want to take when you prepare for your Daniel Fast is to select a purpose for your fast.
What needs do you have now?
What are the blessings that you hope to receive from God?
Is there a matter in your life that is causing you great stress?
These are all things you can think about focusing on during redeeming fast.
But then you also want to make sure you’re not limited in God by restricting your prayers solely to your needs.
What do I mean by that?
The Scripture teaches us in Ephesians 3:20-21 to go much higher and more profound! Listen with your heart to these powerful words. Hear this promise in your spirit.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Your God already knows what He wants to shower over you in His ways of exceedingly abundantly above all that you can think. Even above all that you can ask.
So what do you do?
Spend some time with God. Open your heart to Him. Consider His great heart. Consider His immeasurable love for you.
What are the blessings that the heart of God has for you?
Yes, you may still have a great need that you want to pray about during your Daniel Fast. But don’t keep the lid on the treasure of blessings your Father has for you.
Consider the many blessings that your Lord has for you. Those promised blessings that are exceedingly abundantly above all that you could ask or think.
Put your hand in the hand of God. He has so much more for you than you can ever even imagine.
What is an exceedingly abundant blessing you would like to receive from the hand of your loving Father? Share your thoughts in the comment area below.
Be blessed on your fast.

Looking forward to this fast! I think you meant begins Jan. 9th, not Dec. 9th (thought I’d bring that to your attention.
Thank you so much, Vickie! Yes, you are correct. The New Year fast I will lead begins at sunrise on Sunday, January 9th (I corrected the post).
Be blessed and I look forward to starting the New Year with you as we turn to the Lord with extended prayer and fasting in the New Year.
I am praying God Himself will break through my 40 yr of age Godson’ s mind, heart, spirit, and chronic mental and emotional illnesses and rescue him, save him, reveal Jesus to him in a way he can see and understand, accept, cherish, love, and obey and have the fullness of life only Jesus can provide.
